Dowdy's Auto – Idaho's Top Choice for Brake Repair

The moment you sense that your vehicle’s brakes are not responding as they should, a wave of worry can wash over you. Whether it’s a squealing sound, a longer stopping distance, or a pedal that feels spongy, brake issues are not just a nuisance; they’re a genuine safety concern. In a state as geographically diverse as Idaho, from urban commutes to winding mountain roads, having reliable brakes is non-negotiable.

At Dowdy’s Auto, we prioritize your safety and peace of mind above all. Recognizing the critical importance of fully functional brakes, we offer comprehensive brake repair services designed to ensure that your vehicle stops when you need it to, every time.

Our Complete Brake Repair Services

Brake Inspections

Our ASE-certified technicians conduct thorough inspections of your brake system, identifying potential issues before they escalate into major problems.

Pad and Rotor Replacement

Brake pads and rotors undergo wear and tear and are often the first components to need replacement. We offer high-quality replacements that restore the effectiveness of your braking system.

Brake Fluid Change

Over time, brake fluid can become contaminated, leading to decreased braking performance. We perform brake fluid exchanges to ensure your brakes remain responsive.

Brake Line Repair and Replacement

Damaged brake lines can lead to fluid leaks and reduced braking power. Our team can repair or replace brake lines to maintain the integrity of your brake system.

Caliper Servicing

The brake caliper plays a crucial role in the braking process. We service and replace calipers that are not functioning correctly to ensure your brakes apply evenly and effectively.

Drum and Shoe Replacement

For vehicles with drum brakes, we provide drum and shoe replacements to ensure your braking system works seamlessly.

ABS Diagnostics and Repair

The Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) is vital for maintaining control under heavy braking. We offer diagnostics and repairs for ABS issues, keeping this critical safety feature operational.
